Top Customer Reviews
This novel follows the story of a young transvestite prostitute in Ireland who was abandoned at birth. He is searching for love, money, revenge, and his mother. The Northern Ireland War is the stunning backdrop for this novel. The conversation and insight by the protagonist is intriguing and his struggles to find himself and his mother are heart wrenching. When he finally spirals down in to depression and insanity, the reader feels the innocent little boy trying to grasp at one last little piece of a dream. His vengeful fits explode like searing fire off of the pages.
Breakfast on Pluto is a short, fast read. If your brain is on, that is. If you don't get it the first time, read it again and the piece will fall together like a Chanel scented puzzle. Some people may be turned off to the graphic sex and rape, (I was one of them) but it is crucial to the story. This is a book that deserves to be read and Patrick McCabe is an author that deserves to be highly credited for his work. For a rating of this book, I give it a 4 out of 5 stars. (Hey, that 2 time reading irked me a lot at first, what can I say.)
